Character Specific Questions:
I'm curious about the answers to these myself, especially the dagger.

Well, for battle cries, I saw a couple of good ones in the chat:
"Don't make me ax you twice!"
"Pharasma wants a word with you!"
And for the last name, why not go back to the Quest for Sky? Skyseeker!

Heh, yeah. Thanks for the help everyone; I think I've got it figured out.

Yeah, I wouldn't even bother trying to download them until Thursday evening or Friday morning.
I remain curious and optomistic about this new edition. There are things I liked about the playtest and things I didn't, but I'm given to understand that there have been big changes.

I knew subscribers get their PDF early, I wasn't sure if that would still apply. My gaming group meets on Fridays, and I wanted to know if we'd have the book in hand that Thursday or Friday. PDFs are one thing, but hardcopy is handier at the table.
There's a bit of a typo in the the Expert Wizard Spellcasting feat on page 283. The second paragraph reads like so: "At 14th level, add two level 5 spells to your spellbook, and you gain a level 5 spell slot that you can use to prepare a level 5 spell from your spellbook. At 8th level, add two level 6 spells to your spellbook, and you gain a level 6 spell slot that you can use to prepare a level 6 spell from your spellbook." As that stands, you'd get your 6th level slot before you'd even qualify for the feat. :)
1. Can the following items be enchanted:
Adamantine Breastplate, Dwarven Plate, Dragonhide Plate, Elven Chain, Mithral Shirt, Darkwood Buckler, Darkwood Shield, Mithral Heavy Shield
I think they should be able to be enchanted, since they're not magical and it's the material they're made of that gives them their properties.
2. Why does a Bag of Holding have its normal weight even when empty? Shouldn't it be the lesser of 1/2 lb (the weight of a sack) plus contents or its max weight?
3. Can a Wight use its energy drain in a grapple? I think it should be able to, but only if it chooses to do damage as its grappling action.
I think it's sad that things like this still happen. Still, I think it shows how far we've come that this has generated such an outcry. Personally, I think this judge should be fired with extreme prejudice.
I personally refuse to discriminate on the basis of race, nationality, religion*, disability, sexual preference, gender, age, or most of the other lines we use to separate humanity. I do this for the simple reason the the capability to be a jackass or idiot knows no bounds and is endemic to the human condition.
*With regards to religion, I must confess to a severe dislike for Satanists. I've never gotten along with any of them I've met.
This article just makes me sad. And I have a similar tale to relate as well.
Someone I know in the USAF is currently divorcing their husband because he won't stop playing WoW. He's also currently in trouble for a variety of reasons that stem from the fact that he just doesn't give a damn about anything But WoW.
Myself, I play WoW. I'd much rather play real RPGs though. And when did video game geeks become gamers?
I just want to admit here and now that I'm a bit overwhelmed by how enthusiastic Pathfinder fans are. The amount of fan-created material and support is just amazing. It seems like every day I'm finding somewhere new to swap ideas, get material from, and other goodness. It reminds me a lot of how M&M fans tend to be.
So in a word...
Very high stat rolls are statistically unlikely, but they do happen. My second AD&D 1e character had straight 18s. Funny thing is, the DM flat-out asked if I was using loaded dice in front of the other players. My reply was "They're your dice."
My suggestion is, keep a quiet eye on the other player's dice rolls. If he's a little too lucky a little too often, say something to the DM.
I've produced a more printer-friendly version of the PFRPG errata. Can someone suggest where I can post this? And (somewhat more importantly), does Paizo object to my distributing this?
Side note: I know some people have spotted more(!) errata in the core book. Any idea when there will be an updated errata file?
I believe I have found an error on p. 203. The last sentence under Distracting Spellcasters reads as follows:
If you damage the spellcaster, she may lose the spell she was trying to cast(as determined by her Spellcraft check result).
I believe that instead of calling for a Spellcraft check, this should be a concentration check.
Rules and publisher for me. I was hooked at the beta, and the final product has me chomping at the bit to run it. Many things I didn't like about 3.5 are improved in Pathfinder, even some things I didn't realize irked me. Detail and flexibility has been added to all the core classes. Attacks of opportunity, grapples, and more are all much improved.
And although I didn't get to run the beta rules myself* I was floored by the fact that Paizo just put the playtest rules up there for anyone to download. No application, no NDA, just pdf awesomeness for the taking. That speaks a lot for publisher attitude for me. Plus I remember the Paizo run of Dungeon & Dragon magazines well. I kept reading even while I wasn't running D&D just to get more material.
Admittedly, I haven't looked at the setting yet, but I build my own worlds and borrow stuff from published material anyway.
*Forgive me, about the time the beta started, I was getting ready to become a father. Baby before game.
Unfortunately, a variety of RL events have kept me from having the money to buy a copy of the playtest rules till now. I would gladly have paid the money for one.
(Sad to say, there's only place I can get one printed in town. And their cost on a 400-page print job is prohibitive.)
Guess I'll just wait for the full rulebook then. It'll make a good birthday present for myself.
